Senmon-tastic: Cha-han O
Even the most prosaic of dishes can now have their own specialty shop, something proved by Cha-han O (2-16-1 Shimbashi, Chuo-ku. www.cya-ou.jp) which does fried rice. But they take it seriously and each batch of cha-han is three days in the making, starting with the stock made from ten kinds of vegetables. Minced Kyushu beef and soy sauce add the final touches.
